WOuldn't work for me at first, but when I used firefox and hit refresh a couple of times it did. I'm a Luddite, so not the best guy to ask re computer stuff.

Now I didn't check out what this is all about, but it appears to be a tribute to 'Bringing it all back Home ' . An interesting idea for sure . Oddly , they include "Barbed wire Fence", from the Highway 61 sessions ; and "Mama" from the Another Side sessions . "If you gotta go" is an outtake from the BIABH , and they could have included "Farewell Angelina" .
I will have to listen a little more, but some versions sound quite different from the original, and some are almost too similar ("Tambourine Man", and "Gates of Eden".to the originals .

Great stuff, though he is so well covered at this point that you could do just endless compilations. What I would like to see is the most wildly different covers of the same song juxtaposed: Jerry's "Forever Young" right next to Diana Ross'; Hole's "Baby Blue" right next to Judy Collins'; seriously, this could be a lot of fun.
